SINGAPORE - On Jan 23, the Ministry of Health reported the first case of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in Singapore. As of Feb 21, there have been a total of 86 cases, of which 63 are locally transmitted.

A cluster of 22 patients - over a quarter of the total - are linked to the Grace Assembly of God church, including the church's senior pastor.

The early patients were tourists from Wuhan. On Feb 3, local transmissions started appearing and by Feb 8, they exceeded imported ones.

As of Feb 21, 47 patients have been discharged – 15 Chinese nationals, 30 Singaporeans, a Singapore permanent resident and an Indonesian national. However, five of the other 39 patients are still in critical care.

An analysis by The Straits Times shows that of the 86 so far:

* 52 patients are male and 34 are female.

* 19 are Chinese nationals, including three work pass holders; 57 are Singaporeans; three are Singapore permanent residents; five are work pass holders from Bangladesh; one is a Malaysian who holds a Singapore work pass; and one is a domestic worker from Indonesia.

* The median age of all patients is 42 years.

* The youngest is a six-month-old boy. The oldest is a 79-year-old woman. Also infected are a two-year-old girl, who was discharged on Feb 14, a one-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy.

* 13 of the 86 are under the age of 30.

* 25 patients are in their 30s.

* 23 are in their 50s. Coincidentally, six are aged 56.

Five clusters of patients have since emerged:

1. Yong Thai Hang health products store in Cavan Road: It was visited by a tour group from Guangxi, China, on Jan 23. So far, nine patients have traceable links to that visit (Cases 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 27, 28, 34 and 40)

3. The Life Church and Missions in Paya Lebar: Six people linked to it have tested positive (Cases 8, 9, 31, 33, 38 and 83)

4. A work site in Seletar Aerospace Heights: The five Bangladeshi work pass holders were linked to the site (Cases 42, 47, 52, 56 and 69).

5. The Grace Assembly of God church: The church has emerged as the largest cluster so far and 22 Singaporeans, including the church's senior pastor, have been linked to it (Cases 48, 49, 51, 53, 54, 57, 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 66, 67, 68, 70, 71, 73, 74, 78, 80, 81 and 84).

Another group consists of 92 Singaporeans who were evacuated on a Jan 30 Scoot flight. So far, five passengers have tested positive for the virus (Cases 15, 17, 22, 23 and 45). All five, including Case 23, the 17-year-old boy, have been discharged as of Feb 21.
